Verification of Financial Management Experience (VFME)

A VFME form must be signed by a supervisor who can verify your work experience and submitted to ASMC. You do not have to submit this form before taking a CDFM exam, but it is required to earn CDFM certification.

A qualifying VFME form demonstrates the required financial management experience outlined below:

  • An associate degree or higher plus 2 years of defense-related or 4 years of Federal Government-related financial management experience, OR
  • A high school diploma or equivalent plus 3 years of defense-related financial management experience

**Although education requirements are reported on the honor system, all CDFM Program enrollees and candidates are subject to audit at any time.**

The VFME form can be found on the CDFM forms page here and may be emailed to at any time during the certification process. The Certification Department will send a confirmation email within 3 business days.
